The Biggest Disco Queen Set To Perform Live In Montrose Over Super Bowl Weekend.


HOUSTON — JAN 28 — It’s definitely ‘Raining Men’ this Super Bowl Sunday at the popular Montrose LGBT nightclub F Bar Houston. The nightclub has just confirmed with About Magazine that Disco Queen Martha Wash will be performing live on Sunday February 5.

Martha’s voice has dominated the airwaves and embraced millions of people around the world. She is responsible for some of the top-selling, most recognizable pop hits of the 80s and 90s. “It’s Raining Men”, the cult pop classic, is still heard everywhere… the radio, movies, commercials, TV. “Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” was the highlight of C&C Music Factory’s career, and sold 5 1/2 million copies worldwide.

MARTHA WASH ‘MERGED A GOSPEL VOICE INTO POP AND DANCE MUSIC SEAMLESSLY,’ SAYS RUPAUL

Her musical career begin at the age of two in her parents’ church in her native San Francisco. She went on to study opera and tour Europe while only in high school. Martha became part of a contemporary gospel group called N.O.W. (News of The World) and the mix of classical and gospel training accounts for her seemingly effortless transition, from ballads to dance music to pop.

In addition to her vast career in pop music, Martha has also starred in major theater productions, and has recorded numerous jingles and movie soundtracks (Kiss Me Guide, First Wives Club, Mighty Ducks, Gun Ho).
